What to consider when choosing video transcription software

With reliable video transcription software, you can transcribe video to text accurately without spending hours writing out everything yourself and without paying a lot of money for a transcriber. Choose software with accurate speaker recognition and go for software that records high-quality audio. The clearer your audio is, the better audio recognition software can recognize words correctly. Transcription software is meant to be fast and efficient to save you time. Opt for software that gives you video transcripts instantly after recording.

This shouldn’t compromise accuracy, though. Besides speed and accuracy, choose software that offers suitable transcription formats for your needs. Want to repurpose your video into blogs, articles, or social media posts? Go for text (TXT) transcripts. Want to add captions and subtitles to a video? Go for timestamped SubRip (SRT) files. Both of these are great for increasing your video’s searchability. Other features to look out for include ease of use and the ability to transcribe with various speakers in one video.
